Freeway murals in downtown LA are really a study on the subject of graffiti. Caltrans is required by law to keep graffiti under control and off walls… even if those walls have really great murals on them.The Mural Conservancy of LA is the main voice in favor of the outdoor mural creations of artists in LA. So, you would think they would be at odds. But this meeting on the freeways of LA was a cooperative synergistic effort to put heads together and figure out how to show off the murals and keep the graffiti off them… and age old problem that may have “fresh legs.”
I’ll write more on this in the next day or so… I’ve got lots of pictures and video.
